How We Got Started

The AICSA was incorporated on 12th July 1973, pursuant to the provisions of the Associations Incorporation Act, 1985 SA. It is a division of the Australian Institute of Conveyancers and is managed by a management committee known as a Division Council. Day to day operations of the Institute are overseen by the Chief Executive Officer.

The Council

The Division Council comprises a President, Vice-President, Immediate Past President and five councillors. All but two councillors must be ordinary members of the AICSA (conveyancers). The role of the Council is to:

  • carry out the objectives of the Constitution
  • set policy and review annually
  • represent the views of members; and
  • act as ambassadors to promote the Institute and its members
